The 30-year-old homeowner heard some noises outside and confronted the person in his backyard. The homeowner told the suspect to stay put, but the man advanced, police said. The 27-year-old intruder was shot in the shoulder and taken to John Peter Smith Hospital, Sgt. Trickey said.The police don't decide if charges will be filed, so the DA should decide today. Given that Texas has extremely law-abiding-citizen-friendly self-defense laws, I would guess that the only one charged will be the guy in the hospital.
Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. Self-defense is a human right.
